The Nieuwoudt Five Generations range showcases the best of the Cederberg. Grapes are hand harvested early morning at 23.5° Balling from 15 year old vineyards with an average yield of 6-7 t/ha. A portion of the grapes are whole bunch pressed and the other portion goes through the destemmer and crushed for skin contact. One day of settling and then barrelled in 400-litre French oak barrels. Natural fermentation takes place over the next 40 to 60 days with strict temperature control during fermentation. Once fermentation is completed the wine is matured for up to 10 months (33% 1st-fill, 33% 2nd-fill and 33% 3rd-fill barrels of tight grain with medium toast) with monthly battônage of the lees. No malolactic fermentation takes place. Only 14 selected barrels are used to produce 7,400 bottles. Bottled at 13.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: A complex chenin blanc expressing a sensational bouquet of citrus blossom, roasted almonds and orange peel.

Palate: A great balance between oak and fruit on palate showing baked apple and marmalade.

Finish: A rich and creamy finish.
